courtney. >> thank you, mr. president. first of all, thank you for all of that reading material. [laughter] >> i was looking for things to do. and actually, i think your characterization of it was very helpful. it is a -- what's being proposed is a paradigm shift. that takes us perhaps out of our comfort zone, but that's what we need to look at. that's not a bad thing. it's just it is very good and very different. and the challenges of it, i what just beginning to appreciate as i was going through that. retail electrical generation puts me in mind if there were suggestions from time to time that instead of improving treatment at our water treatment plants, we should put water treatment facilities under every sink in the city. and it's somewhat similar to that. and the logistical demands of how you do that in various -- not all sinks are the same. not all property owners are the same. how you service that with a work force that is limited the number of trucks. that sort of thing. it's a very different proposal and that's the kind of thing i think you're working out and i don't want to rush
to thank mr. courtney for asking the citizens advisory committee to weigh in on that outreach to non-english speaking communities. we did that in november and had -- we probably won't be providing a resolution or anything formal. we have the draft minutes, the notes from our discussion that i think may be helpful, kind of the highlights. there were five points that were interesting. art jensen in the back of the room had my favorite. keep it simple. i think the bigger the [speaker not understood] the longer the message, the more difficult it is to translate to other languages. there is an existing sfpuc emergency response plan that is in multiple languages. the idea is maybe to draw on that as a blueprint of some sort as the outreach for the community choice aggregation communication happens. one of our members mentioned there is a department of education, the public's -- i think it's the public school has a newsletter that comes out in six or seven languages and that may be something good to draw on just as the main languages to look at. the idea from one of of our members is if th
their children. >> mr. courtney, i'd like to think republicans can't ignore that kind of testimony, but 179 of them just ignored the victims of hurricane sandy. how do you get a few good republicans to help pass legislation that will make this country safer? >> well, clearly what happened with sandy and frankly what happened with every sort of other sort of flash point over the last two years is that president obama engaged public opinion. he did it with student loans, he did it with hurricane sandy, he did it with the fiscal cliff. they obviously originated measures in the senate. because the house right now because of that dysfunctional caucus, the republican caucus is incapable of originating anything that has a prayer of becoming law. and that we used that process to basically shake those votes loose. of those individuals who again, i have talked to numbers of republicans privately in the wake of newtown who care about this. you know, there really are people on the other side of my aisle who i think we can work with this on this. and again, common sense measures about making existing la
congress really has to treat this as an issue that all of us are responsible for. >> and yet, mr. courtney, no everyone shares your view. we know that some on the right bristle even at the slightest discussion of some form of gun control. here is senator ted cruz, who represents texas, of course houston is in texas, where today's shooting took place. here he is on monday's "meet the press." >> what i don't think is constructive is what the president is doing right now, which is within minutes of that horrible tragedy in newtown, the president began trying to exploit that tragedy to push a gun control agenda that is designed to appeal to partisans, designed to appeal to his political partisans. >> so, congressman, are we exploiting today's shooting again by discussing it or is it a fact of life that every single day this kind of incident happens and we could fill our hour every day with these incidents? >> you know, the president has been in office for years. there have been horrible shootings in aurora, the sikh temple in wisconsin -- >> the shopping mall in oregon. >> right. so the fact t
